Finest operas and ballets in Seoul

In my first out of four years in Seoul, I was a season subscriber to SAC. This allowed me to enjoy the various operas, concerts and ballets presented in 2013. I wasn't able to... read more

Seoul Arts Center has a large footprint with several music halls of international standard. The acoustics of the music halls are of very high standard and so are the world-renowned musical guests who come from far away places. In these two aspects, this complex is truly first class. Moreover, the back side of the complex is surrounded by a relatively... More

In my first out of four years in Seoul, I was a season subscriber to SAC. This allowed me to enjoy the various operas, concerts and ballets presented in 2013. I wasn't able to renew my subscription the following years due to long hours at work. but I otherwise went whenever I had spare time. The quality of the performances... More

Beautiful place. Have lots of quality exhibition year around with great restaurants and cafes. Even small Ice Skating rink in the winter months. One stop shopping for your artsy needs. Highly recommend to visit.

When visiting Seoul, I would suggest spending some time here. This place provides a flavor of Korea and at the same time a great place to escape the cold outside

I've been to this center many times. If you keep an eye on their website, they will get very interesting exhibits. They have had a Studio Ghibli, Steam Punk, Impressionist Art (Van Gogh), and Freida Kahlo in just the last four years. The musical performances are also good, but you might need a Korean friend to help you get tickets.

I have attended 2 events at the Seoul Arts center and have been impressed with the venue each time. The venue is well-organized with a spacious concert hall, well-marked and convenient restrooms, and several dining & snack options.

I'm a regular visitor here. The parking lot is adequate, and the lobby is quite wide. The bar and food is okay, although a bit pricey. The program being run is quite good, and has a concert almost every day. The view is fine, with almost no obstructed view (try to avoid seats with overhang). But the acoustic is somewhat... More

You couldn't luck out much better than to see two exhibitions of the Queen of Art Deco and the Father of Art Nouveau. Tamara de Lempicka for the first time in Korea, and Alphonse Mucha for the second time here in 3 years. Both give a great retrospective on the work of the artists, and the Mucha exhibition shows a...

This was our first time to the Seoul Art Center (SAC) and I must say the facility and performance were both excellent. The SAC is really a complex of different venues. We are at the main stage for an afternoon matinee. The wife and I have seen the Nutcracker at least five time over the past twenty or so years... More
